LLR is definitely one.
Black Throated Wind and Rooster are 2 more.

Personally, I can't understand the disrespect for Black-throated Wind ...

Me neither. I'm not always in the mood, but sometimes that song strikes just the right chord.

I have tried, but I do not like this song. Forget about the revival editions. The '72-'74 versions are more palatable, but I'll go elsewhere in the musical buffet.

I don't know, it's got something. It's not a song to feel passionate about it, I admit, but it usually grabs me.

No disrespect.
I went thru a phase not long ago where I really dug on BTW. Must have burned myself out, because it is not one I care for much anymore. I generally find these things to be cyclical, so I imagine that at some point in the future it will be back in the rotation, but for now it is one that I skip over.

What, you don't feel "Plunging like stones from a slingshot on Mars" is perhaps the greatest line ever written?

Literary genious.

I don't think I have any Always Skips. Except for all Brent tunes.

Rooster is a mostly skip. It's not horrible, but I think I've heard it quite enough, thank you. (If you're a rooster too lazy to crow, wouldja stop crowing every other show, already?!?)

LLR, for all its schmaltz, can get really nice once they get done with the words. BTW isn't on my A-list, but I like that, too. Don't tend to skip it. Will often skip Alabama Getaway, Don't Ease Me In, Hell in a Bucket, West LA Fadeaway and Day Job.

Then there are times I won't skip anything cuz I'm feeling persnickety about hearing a full show. Unless it's a Brent tune. Nothing will induce me not to skip those.

Alabama? WLAFA?
I going to make a mission out of finding you a Brent tune to call your very own.

I'm thinking he may be referring to those Brent solo tunes that include classics like Never Trust A Woman and I Will Take You Home.

I have to agree with AR on this one.

Hey Pocky Way was by the Neville Bros, wasn't it?

SDH is right, I mean the tunes Brent wrote.

Gutsy move.

Good luck with that. As much as I like the early 80's, I'm afraid you'll have to go alone on that one.

Hey, anything to avoid having to hear a bunch of Tons of Steels and Easy to Skip Yous. Btw, if anyone ever ties you to a chair and says, "Which will it be? Day Job or Easy to Skip You?", you could survive the Day Job from that same show. In some cases, it's all about survivability ...

In that situation I would pray my lower intestine could crawl up my spinal column and throttle my brain in order to stop the pain, regardless of which tune I picked.

Yes, that would help, too. Just trying to give you that little extra edge, to help your intestines out ...

Oh no, that song was never good! I can't remember what brilliant poster on this site said something like: "Poor Brent! All his songs are either about heavy machinery or being mistreated by a woman ..."

I'm with you on Looks Like Rain, though - Jerry made that song beautiful. I often go specifically to it if I want to hear that style of playing. I also love how it usually turns into a march somewhere during the final guitar solo.

Been thinking about this song lately, and, given Barlow's other work with Weir, I think we have to consider the possibility that the lyrics may be somewhat tongue-in-cheek, no? Maybe it's a parody of a schmaltzy love song - not as successful as some of his others, and Bobby set it so seriously that it's hard to tell ...

Come on!

Brent loved Rooster enough to fall of his chair during it.
